Mrs. Kerry Taylor « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Dear Parent,

     Please check your child's agenda planner nightly so that you are aware of homework assignments each week. Any questions or concerns please let me know.                                                                                                

Important Reminders:

Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked. Your child's behavior number will be written daily in their agenda.

Your child is permitted to bring a water bottle with them to school each day to keep at their desk. Please make sure it has a lid that can be closed tightly to keep any spills from happening.

Our lunch is every day from 11:42-12:07 in Cafeteria 1.

Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of grocery and household product, clip the label, and send them in to our classroom. We are trying to earn "free" money for our school (each label is worth 10 cents). So before you throw away any of your used items, please check to see if there is a box top label you can clip for our class. Thank you in advance for your support!
